Just went on a 2000 mile trip with no problems!

Ok, so someone said no one ever starts a thread saying they went on a 2000 mile trip with no problems.
And if they did no one would reply.
So we did just finish a 3 week trip, over 2000 miles with no issues in our 01 monaco windsor.
(Ok, except when I tried to run both ac's on 30 amp. It didn't work).

We went down the WA, Ore and Cali coast, back up across to Crater Lake, then over to Boise. We stayed there a week and came back home.

Hope all your journeys and issue free!

Got to love the road trips. We just got back from 8500 miles cross country. Had some problems but never let them interfere with the 6 weeks with 3 grandkids. Loved it! And oh yes, you're correct very few responses but thats okay.

So cheers to all the RVers that love it as much as we do.

Yea, I remember those days :(

Glad to hear you're getting use to the new rig.

Hopefully we've worked through the gremlins in our rig and get back on to a trip with no problems.

I took quite a few pictures. But so far my computer/phone skills only allow me to post them on facebook.

Heck, it took me a year and a half to find a generator start/stop switch in the bedroom.
So there is hope.

3400 miles and nothing but FUN!!!

Took the longest trip in our 2015 Itasca Meridian 36M we bought in January and had nothing but FUN ... my husband, 15 yr old grandson and me. We named her "Roada" like "on the road again". She ran like a dream. Soooo comfortable. And Richard is getting used to driving "Roada" like a pro. We left Austin TX across the panhandle to Westcliffe CO for our annual bluegrass festival, then to Durango for 3 days and Mesa Verda, then driving the bumpiest roads to Four Corners, then to the Grand Canyon for 4 fabulous days, then through the Petrified Forest and Painted Dessert and Meteor Crater, then to Santa Fe for 3 days followed by the long drive home. Created such wonderful memories. Love the MH lifestyle!!! YAHOO!!!

We are 3/4 of the way thru a 6 month trip. We have put 6000 miles on a 2000 class C, since May.
6 tires ( they were due ) and 1 oil change were the only issues we had.

I'm glad someone did! We had to leave our MH in Omaha NE and drive back to south central Arkansas in a rental. Making the trip back to get it this weekend.

Our first big trip was about 1500 miles. New coach, towing our car for the first time. Biggest problem I had was when the drivers side wiper blade flew off in Chattanooga. Last trip was 800 miles and we had traffic problems, a flat on out tow trailer and a rock chipped the windshield.

Savor the trouble free trips

I'm one who doesn't brag about my RV because I'm sure I'll jinx myself. We did go with a CA maritimes caravan last year with only one problem, house batteries were killed by Camping World (allowed them to sit totally flat for a month, 1 month prior to our trip.) CW did step-up and replace them at NC.
